Invest your time, your own or your family savings, invest money you can afford to lose Do not take a loan (or at least not as a private person) because at first you will be spending somebody else s money but later paying it back with your own Aid funds are a good idea As long as you can finance your operations with the profits Think about loans when you are sure your prognosis of the market, you re planning to do business in, is correct.
